School Knowledge Ecosystems Pt. 2

We’ve provided a PDF version of “Schooling in Capitalist America Revisited” by Bowles & Gintis. This text presents a perspective on the role that school plays in society as a whole, challenging the underlying assumption that school exists primarily as a place to learn (even though, as the authors argue, it really should be).

Use this space on discourse if you wanted to discuss this work with others. Feel free to add your thoughts in any form that you see fit, but one way of starting off the conversation might be with a “I used to think… Now I think…” thinking routine. Just share what you used to think before reading the article, now what you think after reading that article, and what from the article led to that change.
